No surprise, but also no surprise the HDD is still going strong. SSDs past 512GB just arn't affordable yet, and i doubt they will be for atleast another 5-10 years.

434 for 750GB and 533 for a 1TB Samsung EVO seems on the right track if you ask me.

Ive just made the move to SSD, don't know why i didn't make it sooner, no wonder a lot of peope recommend SSDs as a decent upgrade, as going from an HDD to SSD, is a massive difference.

I would think more like 2 years.

10 years I would think to see them in near everything as standard.

I kinda meant it as storage drive. As storage they are far from the right price.

I wonder if they can make 1TB+ SSDs with cut down specs for storage.

Don't find this surprising at all tbh! I've been running SSDs for around 3 years and was instantly blow away by how good they are! I'd never go back to mechanical now! Well only for mass storage, but everything else SSD!

Prices have been dropping constantly and there much more affordable as a system drive disk, you can pick up 256GB drives for around 150 these days. My first Samsung P128 was 250 when I bought it! Just shows how much prices have come the last few years. Give it another 2 years and 500GB to 1TB will be in a more mainstream price range.

As storage a SSD wont be affordable in 1-2 years.

I'm pretty sure they can make Low Spec SSDs for storage solutions that are affordable, but they keep pushing things and don't even look at replacing 1-4 TB HDDs in the near future for affordable prices.

I think next generation of SSDs will get much larger vs performance boost. If you read an article earlier Samsung might release later this year.

In 10 years I would expect memristor memory to be making waves and demanding changes to the design of the systems we use. Kind of like a fat man in a small yacht.

I went to SSD a few years ago. I run 2 OCZ Agility 2 480 GB in my Asus G74 laptop. I kept them when I started traveling for work. Sold my desktop but only kept the SSD's. I still have a 2 working OCZ Agility 90 GB in my HTPC with zero problem.
